Rajasthan government is keen to provide mid-day meals to girl students from classes 9 to 12 and has requested the Centre for assistance, state education minister Govind Singh Dotasara informed.
While interacting at a function marking 'International Day of the Girl Child 2019' at Shiksha Sankul in Rajasthan, the minister said nutrition and quality education were equally necessary for all the girls. Under the mid-day meal scheme, every enrolled child, aged 6-14 years and studying in classes 1 to 8, is provided hot cooked meals having certain important and healthy nutritional standards.
"The state government is promoting girls education and working for their overall development," he added. He said special emphasis was being given to maintain the quality of mid-day meals for classes 1 to 8.
